Newton Food Centre gets a bit of a bad rap for pricey food and pushy touts (and its cameo in Crazy Rich Asians didn’t help its case much). But that doesn’t mean this iconic hawker hub doesn’t have its share of good local grub.
On a balmy evening, you’ll find few better spots to chill out in the open air while tucking into sizzling plates of satay, chili crab, and other sinful Singaporean favourites. Here’re the stalls to hit up for your fix of crazy rich food.
XO MINCED MEAT NOODLES
Most locals have a bak chor mee stall they swear by, but XO Minced Meat Noodles might just topple your favourite contender from the ranks. Their signature XO Minced Pork Noodles ($4.50) is fully-loaded with juicy sliced pork and fishcakes, along with crisp beancurd skin, Fuzhou fishballs, and plump fishballs.
